The Revolutionary Black Media Companies Shattering the Glass Ceiling

Last month, Telfar announced that its first duffle bag would be exclusively available through a QR code on its new 24/7 on-demand television service, Telfar TV. A satellite beaming the product over cellphones across the country—the QR code will flash for 60 seconds—allowed Telfar not only to introduce the new service, but also to reduce an exploitative secondhand market that could bot its way to dozens of bags and thousands of dollars with the tap of a key.
However, the move to 24/7 TV is still a curious one for Telfar Clemens’ Brooklyn-based genderless clothing company.

Anthony Downs, RIP

Anthony Downs.
I recently learned that Anthony Downs, one of the greatest political economists of the twentieth century,  passed away on October 2. Like my George Mason University colleague Tyler Cowen, I do not understand why this sad news has attracted so little attention.

Perhaps his passing has been ignored by scholars and political commentators because there is so much else going on in the news. Whatever the reason, Downs deserved better.

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!
One thing I celebrated this past Hispanic Heritage Month? Democrats no longer have a monopoly on the Hispanic community.   
As a Hispanic small-business owner, a U.S. Marine Corps combat veteran, and now a Republican candidate for Congress, I’m not just in touch with the working-class Hispanic voters who the elites in the Democrat Party pretend to speak for – I am one.
